  • The Raven is a mystical creature known by many tribes as a magician, as well as a story teller. “A great magician stole the sun, the moon, and the stars, from the earth.

He turned himself into a baby and tricked the magician into giving them to him, then promptly returned them to the people on earth”. Raven is revered as a strong animal spirit among many tribes, especially tribes within the Pacific Northwest, Alaska and Canada.
